CELEBRATING THREE YEARS OF MARRIAGE
How could I possibly be married for already THREE YEARS? It seems impossible! I remember like yesterday, when I met my husband. It was in October of 2018 and I was 58 years old. It was only a few years before that, I thought I would never get remarried, and I for sure didn’t want to join in with another family. Now here I am HAPPILY MARRIED and have an amazing new family to add to my own three sons and their families.
Don’t you think it’s interesting how life works? It’s never what we imagined for ourselves, at least in most cases. Unexpected things happen to us along the way that we used to say we’d never be able to deal with. Then one day we wake up and realize that we are being challenged in a way we would have never thought. Such was MY LIFE.
WHAT I’VE COME TO LEARN THESE PASSED YEARS
When I first met my husband and was dating him, it felt pretty perfect! He was so attentive and would do the sweetest things for me. He still does, but naturally after being married for a few years it’s easy to slip in to the routines of life and forget how important it is to still date one another.
A few months ago I heard a woman speaking about how she had incorporated dating more in to her marriage and how it has kept it fresh and fun. Her idea was that her and her husband would trade off every week and be in charge of a date night. We started doing this, because I’m guilty of getting caught up in my work. It has made a world of difference! Dating and courting one another should be a part of EVERYONE’S marriage on a regular basis!
I’ve also learned how interesting it is that we are so compatible but completely opposite in many ways. I’m much more hyped up than he is. He’s the laidback and calm one, and me not so much! My personality is much more high strung than his. The difference is good in that we balance each other out. As I learn to be more like him, he too is learning from me. This is one of the most beautiful parts of a marriage.
WHAT I’M GRATEFUL FOR IN MY MARRIAGE
I’m grateful every single day for the TRUST I have in him. The LOVE and RESPECT he has for God means everything to me. His sense of humor keeps things light. FAMILY has always been #1 to him. He expresses his love to me every single day with sweet compliments and encouragement. I love his gentle side and the respect he has for others.
I’m truly BLESSED. I know I struck the jackpot with him, and he would say the same about me. TOGETHER we strive each day to work in unison to make our marriage stronger. Do I believe my love for him will be stronger next anniversary? YES!! I totally believe that celebrating four years of marriage will be sweeter, even more than three.
Just a note about my custom made lace jumpsuit. This is what I was married in and plan to wear it every year for our anniversary. It gives me great motivation to STAY FIT!
